    Oh @Hostafan1 I have paid taxes in this country for 22 years I have every right to criticise how my money is spent and the overall plunge into xenophobia and nationalism in this country. Telling me to go where I came from is indeed bigoted even if you don't want to hear it. You can't shut us up because it somehow doesn't please you. But this attitude is the very reason I don't want to take British nationality and more than happy to be an EU citizen.
    And for you to be offended about being compared to Eastern Europe says more about you that the poster...maybe get off your British exceptionalist horse and smell the coffee.

    Over an out.

    Hmm ... to compare the UK to a third world country does strike me as being a bit rude 😞

    Quite a few of us have tried and tried on this and another thread to help the OP achieve his aims. 

    Few of us expect gratitude (although it is nice when it arrives) but to receive insults is likely to irritate the most even-tempered of us. 

    I think we’ve offered as much advice as we can to @oker on this subject and suggest we move on 😊

    When did I tell YOU , or anyone else to " go where you came from" 
    I merely pointed out that everyone is free to leave whether they were born here or born somewhere else.
    I'm not offended by anyone comparing us with communist eastern europe, I'm suggesting that to make that comparison might be considered bigoted.
    I'm more than happy with our "free movement" of migrants, I'm just bored with folk constantly moaning about it here.
    I share you concerns about "the overall plunge into xenophobia and nationalism in this country."  and have criticised both in this Forum on many occasions.

    It seems a bit extreme to damn a whole country or culture because you can't be bothered to mix your own compost. Seems more like a first world problem to me. I'm sure people living in third world countries have more pressing problems.

    The point is: In UK they do not have any ready soil for conifers.

    And this is a shame! Because, for a garden market, a ready soil for conifers, is so common like a toilet paper for humans in UK. Why in Germany and in Czech Republic they do have a ready soil for conifers? And not in UK? Who should pay so expensive postage from these countries?

    P.S. If you know about any ready soil for conifers in London, thank you for the link.
    P.S. If the dangerous populist / communist / Islamist Jeremy Corbyn wins the election, we will be happy to run away from UK into Czech Republic because here in UK we will not be able to get even any toilet paper in the shops like Czech people could not in their country before the Velvet Revolution in 1989 when they had Communism/ Socialism!



  • One wonders why conifers seem to do well in the UK in that case :)

    Well I'm sure we'll  find something to wipe our bums with.

    It appears that the questioner just hasn’t read the replies which have explained exactly what he or she needs, where to get it from and what to go with it ... 😟

    They might also pause to reflect that they are free to give their political opinion in a country devoid of bags of ready-made pine compost.

    "Why in Germany and in Czech Republic they do have a ready soil for conifers? And not in UK?"

    Oh I dunno, maybe because regular compost will do the job just fine?

    In the same way that, for example, regular tinfoil worn on the head will block Islamo-communist mind control rays just as well as specially made tinfoil marketed for that purpose.
